Many guys are using the Suunto series watches with the electronic compass.

Another widely used, strong, affordable watch is Casio's "G-SHOCK" series. Many units issue them along with tons of other cool gadgets and equip.
There was a PJ instructor down at CDQC that hands em out for the PJ students to use. Its some of the Army's first look at the fact that the Air Force is pretty spoiled, but their just jelous.

Don't get a Highgear watch I have one it has altimeter, barameter, the only reason I got it because you can save like 20 runs in it. However today I went snorkeling in the mediterranean I was only diving down maybe 15 feet and water leaked in and the watch is now broke.so if you are going Pararescue don't get a Highgear because it won't survive 2 days in indoc. lol.

I have a mild obsession over G-shock watches.. I bought one of the new "rescue series" (G 7900b), and I don't have one bad thing to say about it.. Runs under 150$, solar powered (10 years+ rated), atomic time keeping, tide graph, moon graph, count down timer, multiple city times, 200meter underwater depth rating, and the obvious that it takes ALOT to break it.

BUT, when you do flutter kicks and don't situate it right it has a tendency to dig into your hinds with it's protective face on a pool deck.( I just roll it over quickly before I get into position).

It's a beast of a watch, and will take whatever you throw at it. The Suunto, is definately awesome and probably has a couple more cool toys on it (gps etc.) but the price scared me away at the moment.
